    I can relate – I am so worried about rain too for our outdoor picnic wedding – there’s a shelter, but if it’s really raining, we’d probably still get pretty wet.

    I’d say just go for the beautiful cottage you’ve found, keep the guest list where it is, including the kids, and hope for good weather. On the off chance that there is bad weather, I am sure your guests will understand and people will still have a great time. The wedding is only going to happen once, and it’s only for one day. 🙂

    Have you checked the local weather statitics? is rain common that time of year? If it’s LIKELY that it will rain, I’d say move venues or rent the tent, but if it’s not likely, just plan on cramming inside. People will understand!!

    Tent or cram, either way – people understand!!! And sometimes it ends in great stories and fun unexpected experiences… a la mrs tiramisu!

    I’d say rent the tent.  You really don’t want people remembering your wedding as “the one where we were all crammed into that small building” if it rains.  They’ll understand, but that will affect how they feel about the wedding.
